Question: What do you think of Shakeology?
Answer: You know, Shakeology is a solid brand. As a nutritional supplement, I think it’s totally fine.
Ultimately though, any long-term, stable way of eating needs to rely on real, whole foods.
Also, chewing is very important to us a species (for facial bone development and breathing), so it’s important that we largely eat real, solid, unprocessed foods. Thanks for this awesome question!
Question: Do you know of any low carb pasta options?
Answer: Yes, there is one called Pasta Zero. However, to be honest, I don’t particularly like it. I don’t enjoy the texture or the taste of it.
So instead, what I do to improve the nutritional content of pasta is two fold:
1) I usually aim to eat in within a few hours of a strength workout. This is because I intentionally consume carbs during this time window anyway (this is known as nutrient timing).
2) If that’s not possible, then I include a lot of healthy foods into the pasta, like veggies and lean meats, so that I fill up on these healthy items instead of overeating on the pasta.
